Loot

A funny, absurd play that seems superficially silly, but actually pokes fun at a lot of conventinal behaviour and beliefs.
Tow jarring notes with regard to the language – the repition of the word “baby” which Mathew Edison was clearly uncomfrotable using, although his was a strong performance in all other respects. the second was the sudden interjection of “fucking” in a speech by the otherwise linguistically proper Truscott (Michael Hanrahan). It stuck and did not add anything.
Nicole Underhay gave her ususal excellent performance, as did Oliver Dennis.

    Yes, it was fun. It seemed a bit dated – but that might have been the language things Cathy pointed out.Underhay really is good. I miss her at Shaw, but I am glad she is doing different stuff, like Mike Sharra and Ben Carlson at Stratford.
